A List For Summer

I apologize for being away for so long, but life has a way of getting in the way of hobbies. In the past month or so, Nate graduated from med school and started his residency, we roasted a pig for family and friends at the farm, I boycotted blogging due to cold, rainy, miserable weather, and we spent some time adjusting to our new schedule (which is about to change in a month, again!)

After catching up on my favorite blog reads, I decided to make a list of some of the many things I hope to accomplish this summer. These are the must have, must do, must be's of so many things I want to have, do, and be. 

Must Do:
see an outside concert or play (I love Shakespeare in the park!)
swim in the lake, any lake
spend time on Dad's Boat
watch the sailboat races on Tuesday nights
drink iced coffee and stroll through the neighborhood at night
serve food to friends that I've grown 
make raspberry and blackberry jam
spend a day at the beach
take a walk in a rain shower sans umbrella

Must Eat:
lots of food from the grill
homemade peach crumble
homemade pasta sauce
sun tea with lemon
rainier cherries
creme fraiche, baisl, and sungold tomatoes
at least one drippy, double scoop ice cream cone

Must Be:

Below are some pictures of summers past . . .
